Joining the lab

(Department of Biology retreat photo 2015)

The Department of Biology at the University of Rochester is an exciting, collaborative, and intellectually stimulating place to work or study. The Larracuente lab is part of the EEB program – a tight-knit group with strengths in evolutionary genetics and genomics. Our lab has a diverse group of geneticists and evolutionary geneticists broadly interested in genome evolution. We encourage applications from students and postdocs who share our research interests and our lab’s values.

Interested in joining our lab? See opportunities below.

  • Prospective graduate students interested in joining the lab should contact Amanda Larracuente at and apply to the University of Rochester graduate program in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology through the Department of Biology PhD program.
  • Prospective postdocs should send Amanda Larracuente a description of  prior and future research interests, a CV, and contact information for references.
  • Highly motivated undergraduates interested in working in computational biology, Drosophila genetics or fireflies should contact Amanda Larracuente at to discuss possible opportunities in the lab.
